Some realtors will discount their price. Some realtors are the discount type. Some offer less services that cost less overall.

Welcome to the Forum, Karsan:
Check with the local law officials first, to see what is legal.
Some folks list their homes themselves and welcome Realtor interest at their own rate. Some make a deal with the Realtor in the begining for a lower rate of pay. If the house is priced right and there is a lot of interest, the Realtor knows he can turn a quick buck and may be glad to get 1-1/2% on the sale.
If they have to advertise the home, conduct open house, and have to show it more than 3 times they want the full rate; in some cases, up to 10% of the sale price. The key to a real estate sale is, if your home sells, it creates at least 4 more sales so, they don't have to make all their commission off you.
Glenn

well, you can always ask them to take a lower fee. I’m sure with the soft market, less is better than none. Or you can try FSBO services like www.forsalebyowner.com.

yeah, it’s pretty cool. I mean what does a realtor cost? 6% …1 out of every $20 of your home price going to them? No thanks.
